Nokia 9500 & 9300: Using WAP

This page contains details of how to use WAP on a Series 80 communicator.

The Series 80 Communicator family includes the Nokia 9500 , Nokia 9300, and the Nokia 9210. This page focusses on the newer 9500 and 9300 - the 9210 has its own WAP connection page

Setting up o2 WAP on a Series 80 communicator

To get WAP access, you need the following:

  1. An O2 SIM card (which gives you free text messages and a WAP allowance)
  2. A Series 80 smartphone (such as the Nokia 9300 and Nokia 9500).
  3. The built-in Series 80 browser (the web browser supports WAP)
O2 Wap / Mobile Internet settings:
Dialup access number: +447712927927
Proxy Server:
Port number: 8080
Username: o2wap
Password: password
Secure connection: No

WAP on a 9210

Once set up, you should be able to access WAP content through the Communicator's Web Browser. The Browser, from Opera, supports WAP as well as Web.

Problems connecting

If you're having problems connecting to WAP, try the following advice:

  • In order to use WAP, you must have data services enabled on your account. If you can't connect, contact your network operator (e.g. o2, Orange, Vodafone or T-Mobile), and ask them to ensure that your SIM card is 'data-enabled'.
  • If trying to connect via GPRS, note that this is a different service to standard dial-up WAP access. Again, contact your network operator to ensure GPRS is enabled on your account.
  • Still having problems? Double-check your settings are 100% correct. The UK settings for the main network operators can be found on our WAP page. Alternatively, try getting the settings sent to your handset using the Nokia Configurator.
  • If you're still having problems, best bet is to ask in our forum with details of handset type and error messages. Alternatively, contact your network operator for help.
